I abhore violent behavior. I don’t like raised voices, things being slammed around, that kind of thing. It brings up really bad memories.
And I do not for one minute think violent games, films or entertainment are good outlets for our frustrations. Do. Not.
Still, I have to admit that there’s something to be said about physically acting out, as long as it isn’t destructive or aimed at a living being.
Sometimes, catharsis is necessary. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been known to pace the house ranting and raving about some frustration or another. While venting helps, it’s not always enough.
Letting off steam is a physical thing–sometimes you just have to beat on something.
|No pinatas shaped like living things, please!
Wouldn’t it be amazing if these were available to us throughout the day? A way to channel our anger and frustration?
Bap! Take that!
Bang! Let it out!
If we had a way to channel frustration, would we be calmer?
And even better, would there be less violence in our society?
So, how to vent frustration? Perhaps every home should have a Pinata Room and an endless supply of colorful pinatas filled with—well–confetti! Confetti is festive, fun and a shower of confetti would make anyone laugh. And laughter is a great tension reliever.
So it would have to be an easy-to-clean-up Pinata Room.
Note to self: Figure out which room is the Pinata Room.
